Technology-Enhanced NYU Steinhardt Faculty Instruction

Our faculty will support and mentor you as you learn how to teach your subject and build core skills and classroom competencies. Your instructors and mentors will regularly observe your classroom practice through online video sessions, and work with you one-on-one and in small group sessions to hone your teaching skills.

The Embedded MAT technology enabled by Torsh Inc. and HotChalk Inc.:

  • Makes it easy to record your teaching with a smartphone and upload the video to the cloud so you and your faculty mentor can review your progress in the classroom
  • Allows you to add notes and documents such as lesson plans, student work, and other resources to the teaching video
  • Provides a space to build online portfolios containing videos and teaching practice documents for certification and job-search purposes
  • Uses an easy-to-navigate learning system to access and submit module assignments, communicate with faculty, engage in discussions, read, and reach out for help

In addition to technology-enhanced instruction and video-based observations by our faculty, you will receive in-person feedback and support from your host school teaching mentor.
